Next-gen Hyundai Verna to continue offering diesel engine option

The Hyundai Verna will compete with the Honda City, Skoda Slavia and the Volkswagen Virtus, none of which, offer a diesel engine option.

Hyundai is gearing up to launch the new-generation Verna next year. It is likely to be the only mid-size sedan in the segment to get a diesel engine option after the RDE (Real Driving Emission) norms come into effect.

The next-gen Verna is expected to be offered with a 1.5-litre diesel engine equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger (VGT). This is the same engine that is available in the Creta and Alcazar. The 1.5L FGT diesel is unlikely to be upgraded to comply with the new emission standards.

The Verna will be available with a 1.5-litre petrol engine and reports suggest that the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol motor might also be on offer. Transmission options are expected to be carried over unchanged.

The upcoming Verna will feature a new exterior, based on the brand’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design language. For the first time, the car could get Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
